The NYT says: It’s not a pipeline problem. It’s about loneliness, competition, and deeply rooted barriers.

The impact of gender is hard to pin down decisively. But after years of biting their tongues, believing their ranks would swell if they simply worked hard, many senior women in business are concluding that the barriers are more deeply rooted and persistent than they wanted to believe.

The New York Times writes: Women finding individual identities tied to their work still makes many people uncomfortable. People are quick to assert that we can’t “have it all”; the American government and workplaces are slow to implement policies that would enable us to at least have something a little better.

The idealized vision of 1950s womanhood that still permeates our politics ignores the fact that staying home may not actually make mothers happy.
